SPEAKER

Samuel Spear, Jr.

Samuel Spear, Jr. has almost 40 years experience in Systems Development, Data Center Management, Network Management, and Small Business Consultant. Samuel began as a programmer for clinical labs, developing software for the interfacing of testing equipment and computers. This led to management in the NYC Bureau of Labs and later consulting and project management. I consider myself a generalist that can provide complete services to small businesses. Samuel believes it is essential to “give back,” to become involved. He served on the Delray Beach Historic Preservation Board, and currently on the Code Enforcement Board and The Delray Beach Sports Destination Committee.

Sam has been recognized with numerous awards for his civil and community duties and contributions. Mr. Spear regularly engages in artistic and creative activities. He is an ardent photographer and world voyager. (He has traveled to Europe, Africa, Turkey, Egypt, China, Ethiopia, Timbuktu, Cuba, and Spain and has had several successful photography exhibits, in New York and Florida.) Samuel says, “ I have always tried to remain curious. Life is to be lived to the fullest with GOD’s Blessings.”
